Should the Kp-Index show numbers favorable to see the Auroras in our area, you will want to find the darkest spot possible, to avoid light pollution.

The Northern Lights are created "when large numbers of electrically charged particles (electrons) at high speed stream in towards the earth along its magnetic field and collide with the highest air particles", according to the Tromso Geophysical Observatory at the Arctic University of Norway.

Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights, may be visible in the skies over Ireland this weekend.

Things got more active with the sun this week as it produced a solar flare and coronal mass ejection that will affect parts of earth this weekend.

The Northern Lights may also be slightly visible Sunday night, but the power grid energy will begin to fade by this time.

The Met Office's Space account tweeted: "CME forecast to arrive late 23rd March following C5 flare from sunspot AR2736".

The spokesperson added the chance of seeing the Northern lights from north England is roughly 20 per cent but 50-60 per cent further north in Scotland.

As CNET notes, one of the most powerful solar storms in history occurred in 1859, and which caused an aurora that could be seen around the world and caused telegraph wires to light aflame.

You don't need any fancy equipment to see the glorious display. "This will pair with completely clear skies", wrote meteorologist Joe Charlevoix on Twitter.

NOAA, an American agency that monitors the atmosphere, said the Northern Lights could be visible as far south as MI and Wisconsin in the United States.
